What it is is a Morgan 3-Wheeler

What it is is a Morgan 3-Wheeler

By Yoav Gilad / 29 Jan 2015 / 10 Comments Read More

There are many reasons that the Morgan 3-wheeler isn’t for you, most of them related to practicality and the fact that you’re not a superhero living in an underground lair in the sparsely populated English hill-country.

You’ll find Neal’s 2500M listed on Craigslist New York City for a paltry $24,000.

Although we contacted the seller in October, we weren’t initially keen on either travelling across the country just for a car, or buying it sight unseen. However, over a Christmas vacation together (and perhaps enough BEvERages) we decided to go for it (and also convinced my mother it was a good idea). Thanks to the helpful seller, the Mini was packaged up and shipped...
